We have the 20th year of CPAB if you can imagine how it evolved over the years and will continue to evolve this year we decided to do something special to enhance throughout the city, CPT. Davis along with the CO-Chairs of the CPAB asked to meet with them telephonically to go over each of the area’s goals over the year. Drew out 3 top issues that were important to make it a CPAB goal. What you have before you is a document that was sent August 20th about 3 important goals CPAB could help us achieve. Enhance the use of social media outreach.
Community involvement and crime prevention: would like to involve the younger population and have a younger voice and representation. A lot of our young are either in school or at work and their hours are different than many of us. Trying to encourage and increase youth involvement in our CPAB. They can bring more information and have a more robust involvement of the community.
